Hola, I am a descendent from a Melendez family that has ties to Chihuahua families.We have family members in Chihuahua, Texas, New Mexico and South Dakota.I don't have to many facts now, I just started gathering information to persue my family tree.
I know that my father was born in Cuchillo Parado, Chih. in 1900 and got married there. He had nine brothers and two sisters. I remember them mentioning several places where the family has at one time lived, Delicias, Coyame, San Jose del Sitio, Cuchillo Parado, Cuauhtemoc, and Chihuahua city.I have a cousin that remembers visiting his grandmother(my grandfather sister) in Cuchillo Parado and her mentioning that we had relatives in Valle de Allende.
I am planning a trip to Cuchillo Parado and that whole area to gather more information this fall. I would like to share more information if you are interested.
